BECOMING A PART OF MCR
The MCR roster is composed of members and employees. Applications for membership are voted on by the Board of Directors. Once an application for membership is received, the applicant is interviewed by the Board of Directors, and a vote is held. If the person is voted into membership, the new member serves a probationary period of three months, at which time a review is held. If the new member has fulfilled the probationary requirements of MCR, full membership is then granted.
All applicants for membership to our organization are required to be certified to at least the Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) level, in EMT class at the time of application, or have some type of public service background that would be beneficial to the organization before being considered for membership. Maintaining their certification can be accomplished through MCRs' In-service program.
The MCR roster is also supplemented by a "Junior Squad". Junior members are between the ages of 17 and 21 years. Junior members must make application to the squad, and serve a probationary period of four months.
Applications for employment are considered based on the needs of MCR at the time the application is received. Applications for employment are reviewed, and interviews conducted by a committee set up by the Director. Non-member employees have few of the privileges that members have. Employees are not allowed to vote on MCR issues, nor are they allowed to hold board positions.
